UFC Lightweight Gleison Tibau returns to the octagon this Saturday night to take on former WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner at UFC 164. Tibau hopes win against Varner will not only put him a step close to a title shot, but he hopes it will bring some attention to his small hometown in Brazil. The UFC released a short video about Tibau ahead of his fight in Milwaukee.
UFC 164: Henderson Vs Pettis II takes place August 31 at the HMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Defending lightweight champion Benson Henderson looks to defend his belt for the fourth time when he takes on Anthony Pettis in a rematch of the final WEC fight in history. In the first fight, Pettis defeated Henderson in a five round back and forth bout by unanimous decision, and the result left Pettis as the final WEC Lightweight Champion.
